Description
 
Christopher Smith, ed.. The second part of a hearing held in April 1995 with Harry Wu as a witness on political & religious repression in China, in particular the vicious system of prison labor camps maintained for political & religious dissidents in China, known as the laogai, a term that means reform through labor. On June 19, 1995 Mr. Wu entered China to further document human rights abuses there, but was detained by the Chinese police & held incommunicado, even though he is now an American citizen. He was publicly threatened with the charge of espionage, which could have brought the death penalty, but after a worldwide outcry, the PRC government subjected him to a quick criminal trial & the issuance of a 15-year sentence & the humiliation of formal expulsion from China.
